Traveling through Internet Friends

One of the more charming places I've seen via photos from an internet friend is the small town of Llandudno on the coast of Wales. If you click to enlarge the map and look up to the top, you'll see where the town is located. Below are two photos, sent to me today, of a snowfall along the beach there. I thought it was beautiful, so wanted to share these (with permission). My friend lives on a hill and can look down her street and see the below sea views every day. When she walks to work, she walks along the sea. Ahhhh. Lovely!

At the bottom is a photo sent on a nonsnowy day of the town hall. This gives a better idea of the wonderful town architecture.

Hi Pat
I keep threatening that if my health ever allows and I get a windfall of money, I'm camping on her doorstep for a while:-)

How beautiful! Almost as nice as NZ!
How do you pronounce the name?

Pris said...

She's pronounced it to me, but I don't think I could duplicate it with the Wales accent. I'll ask her to sound the pronunciation out in writing and post it on here.

Berenice said...

I do believe (so I have heard on the linguistic grapevine) it is pronounced Clan-did-no or Clan-dud-no. As far as I can gather, the Cl is pronounced softly.

Thanx..I know you're from that general area, so that helps. Hope Rae finds this.
